PHOENIX (CBS5) -

U.S. Marshals arrested two fugitive felons for parole violations in Valley cities on Tuesday.

The Arizona WANTED Violent Offender Task Force, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, found Cedric Charles Jordan, 26, in Avondale, and David Standley, 41, in Phoenix, according to a U.S. Marshals news release. Both men were considered dangerous.

Jordan, a member of a California street gang, was wanted by the San Diego Police Department on a warrant issued in April for felon in possession of a firearm and receipt of stolen property.

He was a passenger in a vehicle that fled from San Diego police in March with a 2-year-old child in the back seat, according to the release.

Jordan escaped on foot but was seen throwing a 9mm handgun and narcotics out of the vehicle.

He was also wanted by the California Department of Corrections for violating the conditions of his parole. Jordan was released on parole after he was convicted of assault.

He was arrested Tuesday in the area of Whyman Avenue and 112th Lane in Avondale after trying to hide on the back floor board of a vehicle with two small children inside according to the release.

Standley is a member of a white supremacy gang and career criminal, and was wanted on a warrant issued this month by Arizona Department of Corrections for violating the conditions of his parole, according to the report.

Standley was on parole after having been convicted of second-degree escape.

Standley has a lengthy criminal history that includes aggravated assault, forgery, vehicle theft, misconduct involving weapons, criminal damage, burglary escape and rioting.

Task force members developed information that Standley was staying in the area of 33rd Avenue and Thomas in Phoenix, according to the report.

When Task Force members tried contact Standley on Tuesday, he ran into the residence and refused to come out. After a brief standoff, Standley surrendered, left the residence and was taken into custody without further incident.
